March Subject of the Month ~ Change/Transitions ~

“How strange that the nature of life is change, yet the nature of human beings is to resist change. And how ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us are the very ones that can break us open and help us blossom into who we were meant to be.”
― Elizabeth Lesser, Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

A poem is created by words and punctuation.  Without the puncuation the words would not hold meaning or be understood; the puncuation creates pauses, flow and connection from word to word and phrase to phrase to create a beautiful work of art.

An asana practice is filled with posture after posture;  pauses and awareness of the transitions in the practice create a beautiful piece of meaningful art.  The creativity that one finds through transitions can shift ones practice.  Grace and ease is present and one’s yoga practice becomes their own work of art.

The transitions can be most difficult because it brings on a shift a change; something else is about to happen and one may be uncertain.  Open to the change through mindful transition. Pay attention, breath, explore, ground into the earth that sustains you.  Stay open to what awaits; the challenge and fear may be exactly what may be called upon us to open and blossom into who we are meant to be.
